HOW I STARTED SEWING WITH RECYCLED UPHOLSTERY FABRICS
I became interested in sewing while working for a retail store that sold furniture. They had a “fabric room” where the customers would choose their fabric for their couches and chairs. Twice a year a lot of the fabrics were discontinued and the owners asked me if I wanted them. I thought they were so beautiful I couldn’t imagine throwing them away! So I started to experiment with them and learned the art of decorative pillows! I am also now doing custom pillows for interior designers in my area. From the pillow business I have transitioned into my one of a kind handbags.
I love doing these! It’s like making the pillows but women can carry them around with them!
